Dario Argento to appear at “Mother of Tears” screening

Esplatter.com informs us that director Dario Argento will attend the Frighfest screening of his latest film, MOTHER OF TEARS, on April 19 in the Coronet Cinema in Notting Hill Gate, London.

 MOTHER OF TEARS

I just watched a screener copy of the film last night, and I have to say I am impressed. I was apprehensive after hearing the initial reactions. Non-fans seemed to think it was a bloody mess, and even fans sounded as if they were grasping for good things to say. There are a few missteps, but not enough to sink the movie, and its strengths far outweigh the occasional glitches. In terms of style and structure, it’s not really that much like SUSPIRIA and INFERNO, but that’s all the better; the film stands on its own two feet while clearing making continuity connections with its predecessors. I can’t wait to see it on the big screen.
